Kick Up Your Heels!!!!

I've made this card for the High Hopes Challenge 90. It's a sketch and I do like sketches. I've had this High Hopes stamp for a couple of months now but haven't been in the mood for colouring. Yes Kathy, I did try to use my copics but didn't have the colours I needed. So back to my good old faithfuls...Prisma Colour Pencils. Once again I've used Basic Grey Cappella paper. Love this stuff. lol I've followed the sketch pretty closely feeling that I wanted the image to be the focus not lots of embellishments. The doiley is cut from a Marianne Designs die, which I really like. Cardstock is SU Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss. The image panel was layered on a piece of Blush Blossom and I cut the Vanilla and Black pieces with Nesties. The border is a Martha Stewart punch called Deco Shells. Some Stamp Simply lace and velvet ribbon with Kaisercraft pearls finished off my card.

It's raining here once again with storms predicted. The power flickered a couple of hours ago and I see on the radar that Mackay and Sarina are getting the rain now. We had the storm about 11.30 and it pelted down.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my cards and taking the time for visit my blog.
